I am a mixed media artist who has started licensing some of my work. I use quite a bit of scrapbook paper in my originals, torn into pieces and added together with other bits and pieces of ephemera to create new sheets of paper that I then cut my designs from.
I understand this is fine for my originals, but where do I stand with commercial reproduction?
Does anyone know? I've heard several different theories on this and at this point it would be near impossible to track down all the makers of every piece of paper in some of my work, it could be in the 100s. Some pieces may be recognizable, but others certainly not.
Thanks so much
